Roger all that - although the W/V & K/J stuff seems
fairly easy to get one's head around, I think I'll stick
to CW-only in RDXC - some of these oblast names are
quite a mouthful on phone & with my luck no doubt some
of these guys would also try saying the full oblast name.

Anyway, seeing how everybody has to do something in
order to log Qs with stations in these oblasts, maybe
Tree can distribute one as a replacement for RUSSIAN.DOM
in a future release of the program - RDXC has become very
popular in the last few years & there is nothing more frustrating
than not being able to log a contact because you copied what
the other guy sent.  ;^)
